Kaylee update

Yesterday was a very scary day! Poor little miss Kaylee took a huge turn for the worse. Her fever shot back up, the infection returned, she got water in her lungs, she started not breathing on her own and her fever spiked back to 105. They put her into ICU. For awhile things were very scary. But, by last night, Kaylee was given a blessing and started to seem a little more like Kaylee. Her severe puffiness went down a little.

This morning, although she is still in ICU, she is breathing on her own. That little girl is a fighter and spent the night practicing breathing so she could do it without help of the big mask.

She is still ticked that she can't eat or drink anything. They are trying to decide if they need to do more surgery. So, she hasn't had anything since Friday. Poor kid. She is hungry and her mouth is so dry. But, we are so happy that she is doing better. We think she is going to pull through this just fine, but more prayers her way would be appreciated.
